The Right Step Hill Country Philosophy
The Right Step has been treating patients with chemical dependency issues for more than 20 years. The Texas Hill Country/Wimberley alcohol and drug rehab location offers residential addiction treatment for adult men and women. The program uses a strength-based approach that focuses on positive reinforcement. Situated on a serene, 30-acre campus, the facility provides patients with a comfortable and supportive setting to develop new tools for long-term sobriety.
Areas of Specialization
In order to assist individuals struggling with uncomfortable and potentially-life threatening withdrawal symptoms, clients are provided medically-assisted detoxification services. Physicians supervise progress and administer medications such as Suboxone® and Campral® to ease discomfort and accelerate the healing process.
Developed by The Right Step’s chief medical officer, Positive Recovery® is a scientifically validated addiction treatment approach. Specially trained staff help clients focus on their strengths and encourage gratitude in recovery. Approaches include evidence-based traditional therapies, experiential therapies and practical skill-building.
